Next year will mark the 50th anniversary since the Stonewall Riots changed the world. In what many are describing as a test run for next year’s celebrations, the parade organizers, Heritage of Pride (HOP) have made some significant changes--behind closed doors, with the New York Police Department (NYPD). And people are angry about these changes--which include shortening the parade route--and how they were made. With me is Natalie James, an organizer with the Reclaim Pride Coalition and a member of the Queer Caucus of the New York City Democratic Socialists of America.
